Announcing a new Meetup for Hiking Freethinkers!
What: Hike the Paint Mines near Calhan on Sunday, April 8th

Where: Woodmen Valley park-n-ride
Corporate Drive & Mark Dabling Blvd

Hi Hiking Freethinkers,
Weather permitting; there will be a hike in the Paint Mines near Calhan on Sunday, April 8th. There are 4 miles of trails in the park that make a rough figure eight. The colored rock spires that give the park its name lie close to the intersection of the eight. I consider this an easy hike.
We will be carpooling from 3 different locations.
1) For the people who live north of Colorado Springs, we will be leaving my home at 205 Sedona Drive at 9:45 AM.
2) For most people, we will be leaving the park-n-ride at Corporate Drive & Mark Dabling Blvd. (also known as the Woodmen Valley park-n-ride) at 10:00 AM.
3) For the people who live on the east side of town, we will be leaving from a small parking area in front of the service area of the Toyota Dealer on New Car Drive, just a bit west of Powers, south of Woodmen at 10:15 AM.
I will be leading a caravan of cars, first from my house, then from the park-n-ride at Corporate Drive & Mark Dabling Blvd., and finally from the Toyota Dealer.
Please bring enough water and snacks for the hike. We will most likely stop for a light lunch during the hike. We will be back at the park-n-rides somewhere between mid to late afternoon.
Please let me know if you plan on attending the hike and which of the three locations you plan on meeting. If you change your mind, please let me know that also.
